Krug Collection 1989

Time’s second revelation of Krug 1989

To the delight of collectors around the world, a very limited number of bottles of Krug Vintage are kept in ideal conditions in the House’s cellars. They are tasted and appraised as they wait to blossom into a second life. Krug Vintage then becomes Krug Collection and reveals a new personality. Krug Collection Champagnes are true examples of time sublimation; maturity exposes hidden facets and depth. New flavours surprise, while old ones have gained structure. Krug Collection is always a wonderful discovery, a deeper story of the Krug Vintage. Krug Collection 1989 is time’s second revelation of Krug 1989.

This individually numbered magnum spent at least 25 years in Krug's cellars further developing its depth and complexity. After regular tasting and appraisal, it received its cork as Krug Collection 1989 in spring 2014.

As it is a magnum, we let it rest for even longer, waiting until the Champagne is ready to be enjoyed.

Krug 1989 is the result of a contrasting year ending with a very warm summer. For Krug, the wines of the year were mature, expressive, long, complete and silky. To express the character of this vintage, the House blended well-structured and persistent Pinot Noir (47%), aromatic Chardonnay (29%) and sparkling fresh Meunier (24%).
Krug Collection 1989 is the second life of Krug 1989. Now, over 25 years after its creation, Krug Collection 1989 reveals a new, expressive and opulent personality.
Krug Collection 1989 is part of the House of Krug’s unique trilogy of three exceptional years (1988, 1989, 1990) with completely different climates that resulted in Champagnes that are unique.
The Krug Collection bottles are numbered and leave the House in descending order, thereby revealing how many of these precious Champagnes still remain. They are guaranteed by Krug with a certificate of authenticity signed by Olivier Krug, which can be provided upon request.
The final composition of this bottle of Krug Collection 1989 is 47% Pinot Noir, 29% Chardonnay and 24% Meunier.
The breathtaking second movement of an already admired opus, Krug Collection 1989 is time's second revelation of Krug Collection 1989.

Tasting notes

Deep intense golden yellow colour that announces maturity, opulence, harmony and elegance.
On the nose, exotic, complex nose consisting of honey with spices and white fruits, truffle, earth, slightly browned apples, a hint of high-toned flowers, yeast, and a gentle nuttiness in the background.
On the palate, it is deep with bright, high youthful tones of pear, green apple, citrus fruits marmalade, fresh figs and even a touch of earth with undertones of – and a finish on – mineral and spices.

I still remember my first glass of Krug, being overwhelmed by a complexity I did not expect from a Champagne. It was one big crescendo, a feast of highlights, the big finale of a huge fireworks display.

FOOD PAIRING

Autumn fruits such as dripping, honey-roasted figs, barely-set apricot marmalade, poached pears seeped in their vanilla-hinted sweetness are all beautiful companions for Krug Collection 1989. Comforting and warm, they welcome the delicate, intensified aromas of this Champagne, which has been brought into its second life once more thanks to the devoted expertise of the House of Krug and the sublimation of time.

STORING & SERVING

The Right Temperature

The House recommends that its Champagnes are served between 9°C and 12°C, as colder temperatures limit the expression of their flavours and aromas.

The Right Glass

The House of Krug has partnered with renowned crystal maker Riedel to design a glass that would most generously reveal the fullness of flavour and aromas of Krug Champagnes.

The Influence of Time

Krug offers only prestige Champagnes, the most important characteristic of which is that they will gain beautifully with the passage of time.
